In our technology-driven world, it is impossible to imagine humans functioning without technology. Technology is involved in medicine, education, communication, politics, and so much more! However, is this always a good thing, or not? This essay will give you the opportunity to think about the role of technology by presenting an argument about it. You will utilize a minimum of FOUR resources in this essay to help you support your position. Three out of the four sources MUST be scholarly journal articles from a database.

 

 

HELPFUL HINT #1: YOUR THESIS

 

  • This essay requires you to make an argument about technology. “Technology” however, is way too general of a topic, so in this essay, you MUST apply your argument about technology with something else.
    • For example, Technology and parenting; Technology and privacy; Technology and addiction; Technology and self-esteem.
  • Once you decide what the “something else” is, you will then write your thesis (in strong “They Say/ I Say” format) to clearly address your position. This will be your argument that you will use the rest of the essay to support. Your body paragraphs will then support your thesis, and the four sources will help you do this.
  • REMEMBER TO MAINTAIN AN ARGUMENTATIVE TONE THROUGHOUT THE ESSAY; YOU ARE NOT TEACHING/INFORMING YOUR READER…YOU ARE PROVING YOUR SIDE TO YOUR READER.

 

HELPFUL HINT #2: YOUR SOURCES

  • Remember, for a source to count, you must use at least ONE quotation from it (otherwise, it is not consider a work that you cited, and it will therefore be unable to be included on your Works Cited page).
  • You do not need to include the same amount of quotes from each source. One of your journal articles may be only useful for one short quote; whereas, another journal article may have three quotes you want to use; and your third journal article may only be useful for one block quote; and your fourth source may be useful for only two quotes.
  • Remember, your source quotes must ALL be in proper ICE format, and any block quotes must be used sparingly and in proper block quote format.
  • You should not include every single quote and source in only ONE body paragraph.
  • As the writer, you have control over where your support quotes will go (for example: one quote per body paragraph for a total of three body paragraphs and three quotes; two quotes per body paragraph with four body paragraphs for a total of eight quotes; two quotes in your first body paragraph, two quotes in your second body paragraph, and three quotes in your third body paragraph, for a total of seven quotes, etc.).

NOTE: You may NOT include personal experience to support your argument (no first person pronouns). This essay is an exercise in truly breaking down, analyzing, and citing research to support your position.

NOTE #2: You are writing this essay for a FORMAL ACADEMIC audience, so your writing must be clear of any slang, over-generalizations, insensitive language, and contractions. You are also NOT allowed to use first-person in this essay (no “I”, “Me”, “We”, “Us”, or “Our” pronouns may be used).

 

 

HELPFUL HINT #3: ESSAY STRUCTURE

  • This essay asks you to create an argument about Technology and _____, and you must use a minimum of four sources to support your side of the argument.
  • Well, you know that formal essays must always start with an introduction paragraph (always use the upside-down triangle method for this!), followed by body paragraphs that support your thesis, and then ending with a conclusion paragraph (use the right-side-up triangle for this!)
  • So how do you best utilize your body paragraphs?
    • REMEMBER: the body paragraphs are where the research goes; research never goes in the introduction or conclusion paragraph because the research is meant to help you support your thesis.
    • REMEMBER: the body paragraphs need to support your ENTIRE thesis, so if you have a “They say/I say” thesis, then it makes sense to have a “They say” (or Rebuttal/Naysayer) paragraph. I recommend you make this your first body paragraph so you can spend the rest of the essay showing why that “They say” perspective is wrong.
      • You can even use one of your sources as solely a Rebuttal source!
    • REMEMBER: the majority of your body paragraphs need to support YOUR argument (“I say”), so make sure this is clear in your research and examples in the other body paragraphs of the essay.
    • REMEMBER: you are NOT limited to *ONLY* a four or five paragraph essay. In fact, this essay should be significantly longer than that. Adding well-developed and analyzed body paragraphs helps you add valuable support for your thesis while also helping you lengthen your essay.
    • REMEMBER: you CAN use block quotes in this essay, but use them sparingly! There should be NO more than one block quote per paragraph/ one block quote per page. It may be better to use many smaller ICE quotes to explain them fully, instead of filling the essay with giant block quotes where you spend more time explaining the large block quotes than actually defending your argument.

 

HELPFUL HINT #4: ORGANIZATION

Creating an outline is not required for this essay, but I strongly recommend you use one to help you organize your ideas. In MODULE 6, you will see supplementary notes (video and sample outline). If you look at these notes and see the sample outline format skeleton, you will see a place in the body paragraphs for where quotes may go. I recommend you use this as a guide for where you would like to include the article quotes in your own body paragraphs. As you will see on the outline notes, you MUST start a body paragraph with a topic sentence (never a quote…quotes go within the body paragraph as support!).

 

FORMAT:

  • MLA format; MINIMUM 6 full pages BEFORE Works Cited page (Works Cited page is always the last blank page after the essay has concluded, so in this case if your essay ends on page 6, then the Works Cited is page 7)
  • Four sources must be properly quoted and cited throughout the essay
    • THREE out of these four sources MUST be scholarly journal DATABASE articles.
    • Your fourth source MUST be of scholarly quality, such as a book, credible large newspaper (like the New York Times), .gov .edu. or .org website (no .com websites), or an additional journal database article.

POINTS POSSIBLE:

100 points
